    Only a few days without water.

    For food, it's longer, because your body can live off your fat and muscle tissue. How log all depends on how much of it you have. Essentially your body eats it's self.

    Learned this in survival training.

    About 6 weeks. Drink plenty of water and get a lot of exercise. THC stores in fat molecules. And take vitamins.

    It generally follows the rule of 3s. The body can survive:

    3 minutes without oxygen

    3 days without water

    3 weeks without food.

    Any longer than that and your body shuts down, organs fail, and you die.

    drinkng for about 2 days but eating depends on your weight. the more fat you have the more your body can burn off without eating anything. so it depends on your weight a little but in general like 2 weeks

    eating: about 2 weeks.

    Drinking?: about 2 days.
